The next item of business is an urgent question on Covid-19 vaccine delivery from Donald Cameron. Before calling Mr Cameron, I will comment on the remarks that were made at the Scottish Government’s briefing today in relation to the authorisation of a Covid-19 vaccine. The news of that authorisation is welcome and is a significant matter, but I reiterate to all members that my expectation is that announcements on such significant matters should be made to Parliament in the first instance. It is not a matter for applause.
